Château des Tours Côtes du Rhône Grande Réserve 2002
Dark garnet color. Delicious spicy raspberry scent leads into a full and fresh flavor, almost like eating a bowl of fresh, juicy berries, with lemony tartness to give it balance. Clean and consistent in a long finish, with the structure to suggest at least moderate aging potential. Definitely my kind of Beaujolais. FOOD MATCH: Excellent with Marcella Hazan's pork roast with juniper berries and rosemary; the play of aromatics between the wine and the entree make an exceptionally happy marriage.
